    When a comic like this is online, is there any reason for it not to be rotated to be easier to read? (Answer: No.)

    There was an article about this in the New York Times a week ago: http://www.nytimes.com/2009/08/20/business/media/20adco.html

    For the curious, sportswear used to be worn while hunting.

    For those who got a different strip in today’s paper, was it a rerun or a new alternate strip? Does anyone have a link to it? I’m just curious about whether it slyly comments on the controversy in its own way, such as by satirizing the media.

    I think I’m missing something. I don’t get it.

    @Nabuquduriuzhur: In my high school’s GPA system, an A was 5.0, Bs were 4.0, etc., and some classes were weighted, adding something like 0.05 to your GPA per weighted class. I graduated with somewhere around a 5.2 or 5.3 and was still fourth in my class. That’s still not as weird as my junior high (different school district), where an A+ was (I think) 12, A was 11, A- was 10, etc. It was kind of messed up, especially since different teachers had different standards for what got a + or -. (For one teacher, only 100%+ was an A+, for another 98+ got an A+, and so on.)

    Most of your statements are not facts - you are either intentionally lying or mindlessly repeating someone else’s lies.

    Fact: Obama was born in Hawaii and DID release his birth certificate. There are copies of it online for anyone to see, including at the (non-partisan) fact-checking website FactCheck.org, which thoroughly analyzed the original (paper) document and found no evidence that it was a forgery or had been tampered with in any way. Snopes.com has also debunked the conspiracy theories regarding Obama’s citizenship.

    Opinion: The birthers’ claims are, at best, an attempt to discredit a president whose politics they disagree with and, at worst, racially motivated.

    Fact: The deficit and budget do not always increase. They go up and down from year to year. There have even been budget surpluses (the opposite of deficit): From 1998 to 2001, the budget had a surplus each fiscal year. Rather than the deficit, you may be thinking of the national debt, which is different but has also had periods of both increase and decrease.

    Fact: Abortion does not stop a beating heart if it is performed early enough in the pregnancy. The heart does not start beating until about the sixth week of gestation. I will acknowledge that many abortions - both induced and spontaneous (miscarriage) - happen after that, but not all of them do, so your absolute statement that “Abortion literally stops a beating heart” is not the whole truth.

    Of all of your “facts,” your claim about the dollar is the closest to being true. The first sentence of that statement is somewhat accurate - Although they are not actually printed on “paper” as you state (the material is 75% cotton, 25% linen), you are right that if the U.S. government collapsed, our dollar bills would be very nearly worthless. (They might retain some small value for the raw materials or - for those in mint condition - as collector’s items.) The statement about “nothing” backing it is false, though; while it is no longer specifically linked to gold or silver, you admit yourself in the previous sentence that the U.S. government backs U.S. currency.

    Before you spout off such “facts” in the future, please do at least some cursory research rather than just relying on you own prejudices and the misinformation spread by those with an agenda. If you don’t know how to tell which sources are reliable and trustworthy, FactCheck.org and Snopes.com are generally good starts, and I’m sure your local librarian would be happy to help you with both online and offline research.

    For the curious, Webster’s says that “zucchini” and “zucchinis” are both acceptable as the plural of “zucchini.” (http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/zucchini)
